Camp Avalon - A camp for young birders and inner city teenagers

After our meal at the campsite, we travelled to Stockhill looking for Nightjar on the Mendips.  It was a little breezy and so although we heard the Nightjar churring, only a few people saw them.  It's a shame as it would have been a new bird for some people there.

It was quite hard for the inner city boys to stay quiet but they managed really well and found being out in such an open place late at night spooky.

Although it was a shame not to see Nightjar well,at least it's something we can try again for next year.
